Steve Rattner | FT | 19 January 2011

Steve Jobs at Apple. Jack Welch at GE. Lou Gerstner at IBM. The person at
  the top can make or break the company. Not least because great leaders build
  great teams. “A players hire A players, and B players hire B players.”

Kate Cronin-Furman | Wronging Rights | 19 January 2011

Super-helpful interview with Anis Allagui, Tunisian expat living in North
  America, who gives a simple, clear, apparently well-informed explanation of
  recent events in his home country. Key point: so far, the army are the good
  guys

Will Davies | Potlatch | 19 January 2011

Anatomy of hand-gesture newly popular among British Labour politicians: the
  thumb-press. Make a fist, but lay your thumb over your index finger. "The
  user is not to be messed with, no matter how pleasant their thumb may
  appear"

Neil Shea | National Geographic | 19 January 2011

Strap on a helmet, explore the tunnels beneath Paris. Where you may

Book of the Day

[10]Arabian Sands
    Links:
      10. http://thebrowser.com/recommended/arabian-sands-by-wilfred-thesiger

-by Wilfred Thesiger -

_Jo Tatchell says: _ This is about Wilfred’s post-war years in Arabia, a
  kind  of  homage  to T E Lawrence. Rich in detail, Arabian Sands is an
  evocation of a lost world of tribes, windswept dunes and the brotherhood he
  came to love and admire among the desert people.
